Step Back into History as we tell the stories of Pine Grove Cemetery!
Pine Grove Plots Phase 2 – Help us bring Scugog’s heritage to life!
Pine Grove Plots: History To Die For is a new theatrical cemetery walk program, made possible with the support of an Ontario Trillium Foundation grant. Working with Paul Arculus and the Lake Scugog Historical Society, Theatre 3×60 is creating original theatrical vignettes based on unusual, and occasionally mysterious, local heritage events and people, specifically the inhabitants of Prince Albert’s Pine Grove Cemetery. These vignettes will be performed onsite this summer, as part of Theatre 3×60’s Port Perry Summer Theatre programming.
We’ve got the stories, now it’s time to bring these tales from Scugog’s past into the present!
With the help of our community contributors and aspiring wordsmiths, we’ve workshopped 6 great stories from local historian Paul Arculus’ book Pine Grove Cemetery. And there are some great stories of love, mishap, mystery and wrongdoing to tell! Playwright Graeme Powell is busy tweaking the scripts in preparation for phase two – final readings and rehearsals.
We’re now looking for actors to work with director Michael Serres to bring these stories to life and to perform on site at Pine Grove Cemetery this summer!
If you are interested in acting and history, this may be the perfect opportunity to build your acting skills and knowledge of Scugog heritage. We are looking for young adults and adults (ages 16 and up) for a variety of roles. Previous acting experience is helpful, but not required and level of involvement may be subject to the final number of, and specific roles available.
Rehearsals will be held on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays through June in Port Perry. Not all performers will be needed at all rehearsals.
Performances will be held in Pine Grove Cemetery, Prince Albert alternate Sunday afternoons and Wednesday evenings on July 9, 19, 23, August 2, 6.
